Graduate careers

Careers in ‘risk management’ are likely to remain relatively buoyant as an employment option.

This is because as the world becomes ever more unpredictable and unstable, in business terms, the demand for risk managers is likely to be on-going.
This is also added to by the increased amount of ‘risk regulation’.
